What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The Passat is comfortable, spacious and well-built

Against It's dull to drive and the styling is conservative

Verdict A formidable all-round family load-lugger

Go for… 1.9 TDi 130 SE/1.8 T

Avoid… 1.9 TDI 100

Volkswagen Passat Estate
  • 1. Listen particularly carefully for noises from the suspension
  • 2. Failing electric windows is just one of several electrical faults to look out for
  • 3. Cabin is high quality, well equipped and spacious
